4/5 Good

    Simple and comfortable

    The hotel is simple and comfortable- we stayed on the top floor and were happy with our room. The memory foam mattresses were very comfortable, and the room itself was clean. We did have two concerns- there is an air vent above the door that leads to the hallway, meaning we heard everything in the hallway, and anyone in the hallway would likely hear us talking. The other issue was that there were people in front of the hotel who were obviously just waiting to follow hotel guests into the lobby so they had a place to sit- someone followed us in and sat in the lobby, and the receptionist had to threaten to call the police to have this person leave. My boyfriend and I were worried for the receptionist’s safety- I’m surprised there is no security staff on premises (there were tons of cameras). Overall, we would come back, but the hotel should really take additional steps to keep their workers safe.

    Nice updated place but rooms are small. We were told of courtyard view but it was really a 4’x4’ space of other apartment windows.

    I got room 507 during my stay. I was not aware, at the time of reservation that I would get a room that had a detached bathroom. I was told by the concierge that the bathroom was across the hall from the room, it was not. The bathroom was located across room 506. In essence, every time you needed to use the bathroom, the guest or guests in 506 would know because of the obnoxiously loud clicking sound of the bathroom opening and closing. By the way, the bathroom was tiny. The sink and the shower area was obscenely small. Mind you, when I was checking in, I was told, "oh the bathroom is outside of the room" so I was not necessarily thinking that this was an issue. WRONG. When I got up to the room, I did not feel comfortable about the situation so I requested for the concierge to re-accommodate. Of course, once these people get a sucker to take this room, we're just going to stick it to them. Lo and behold, she told me that it was either going to be a extra charge (it seems that this is the way that the owners make money here) but rooms under "my type" was all booked up (of course, everyone is dying to go to Philly and stay here). Overall, I purposely did not spend much time in the room because of the bathroom situation and I didn't feel comfortable at all. Additionally, the room was ridiculously hot so I opened the window. I got the constant smell of weed and all the drunks screaming at one another. I wouldn't recommend this hotel because of the dishonesty and false advertismen
